On Friday the 2nd of December, 10 year-10 students flew to Auckland for the Spirit of Adventure, 5 Day Spirit Trophy Voyage. We were joined by 3 other schools on our voyage; Macleans College, Waitakere College, and Whangaparoa College. We sailed around Auckland, including a visit to Kawau Island. Over the 5 days, we completed challenges with the other schools to try win the Spirit Trophy for our respective schools, while still having fun along the way. The challenges included a sandcastle competition, a raft race, and a sing-off. We learnt how to sail, how to set the sails on the ship, and how to tie nautical knots. Together, our group learned how to problem-solve and work together as a team. We also made life-long friendships with students from other schools, and lasting memories and experiences. This was an awesome and exciting opportunity that none of us will ever forget.
